Conn. Marriage Equality Begins Nov.10th

Same-sex marriage begins in Connecticut on November 10th.
Same-sex couples will be able to pick up marriage licence applications in the US state of Connecticut from November 10th. The Supreme Court of Connecticut overturned a ban on gay marriage earlier this month, ruling that by stopping same sex partners from marrying was a violation of their constitutional rights. The court is to decide the exact date on which gay marriages can be conducted. There have been more than 2,000 civil unions in ths state since they were legalized in 2005. "I would bet that the majority of those people would change the civil unions to marriage," said Anne Stanback, president of gay rights group Love Makes a Family. "I think that you have people who've waited to get married and have not had civil unions."
What's the legal process for changing from a civil union to a marriage?
